With the remnants of turkey and ham (and who knows what else) still digesting in our holiday stomachs, it is a great time to plan for the major January 2009 Las Vegas events. And what a better opportunity to ring in a brand new year then for tech nerds and sensually predisposed fans to unite as one and attend the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the Las Vegas Convention Center on January 8 though 11, and then take time to walk down the aisles to the next door Sands Expo Center for the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo on January 9 through 11. Only in Vegas does technology and sex merge seamlessly and effortlessly.
The CES show should be booming, despite our economy. Show officials estimate that 20,000 new product announcements will be introduced to an estimated 30,000 attendees hosted by 2,700 exhibitors that represent 30 electronic product categories. Even celebrities will be on hand to spice up the product demonstrations and introductions. A great way to keep abreast of what’s going on is not just surf the CES website: http://www.cesweb.org but also take the time to check out the unique convention information provided daily on the new Exhibitors Daily website: http://www.exhibitorsdaily.com Headed up by Editor-in-Chief Helen Holzer, it is the source to turn to for local and national convention coverage anywhere, including features, general information, and related news. Helen can be reached at Helen@exhibitorsdaily.com
Needing a break from the techno blur? Then walk down the hall from CES and attend the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo. It is touted as THE largest event for the adult industry worldwide. There is planned to be 350 exhibiting companies showcasing the latest adult products and toys. And, if that is not enough, more then 250 of the industry’s top stars will share their “secrets” in fan seminars, events, and plenty of up-close networking opportunities. Oh, be sure to enjoy yourself– leave your Blackberry in your briefcase. http://fan.adultentertainmentexpo.com/aeefan/v42/index.cvn?ID=10000
